Why Men Attack The Bible

1) Because they hate having their evil exposed

(20) Everyone who does evil hates the light, and will not come into the light for fear that his deeds will be exposed.

2) Because they are "natural" men, not spiritual.

1 Corinthians 2:14 NASB
(14) But a natural man does not accept the things of the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him; and he cannot understand them, because they are spiritually appraised.

3) Because they are "hostile toward God"

Romans 8:5-8 NASB
(5) For those who are according to the flesh set their minds on the things of the flesh, but those who are according to the Spirit, the things of the Spirit.
(6) For the mind set on the flesh is death, but the mind set on the Spirit is life and peace,
(7) because the mind set on the flesh is hostile toward God; for it does not subject itself to the law of God, for it is not even able to do so,
(8) and those who are in the flesh cannot please God.

4) Because they are blinded by Satan

2 Corinthians 4:3-4 NIV
(3) And even if our gospel is veiled, it is veiled to those who are perishing.
(4) The god of this age has blinded the minds of unbelievers, so that they cannot see the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God.

5) Because they are under Satan's control

(17) So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.  

Genesis 3:1 NIV

(1) Now the serpent was more crafty than any of the wild animals the LORD God had made. He said to the woman, "Did God really say, 'You must not eat from any tree in the garden'?"

1 John 5:19 NIV
(19) We know that we are children of God, and that the whole world is under the control of the evil one.  

Satan knows that faith in God comes through hearing God's word.  From the beginning, he has been attacking God's word. The first step in leading men astray from God, and into a path of eternal ruin, is to promote doubt about what God has said. "Did God really say...?", is the lie by which Satan has been opposing God, and leading men to hell since the beginning. It is to be expected that Satan will constantly attack, try to undermine, and promote doubt about what God has said, and natural, unregenerate men lie under his power, doing his will (1 John 5:19).

The Gospel

Have you heard Christ died for our sins, and God raised Him from the dead? Did you know God saves you from hell and gives you eternal life through faith in this finished work alone, not your merits (Jn. 3:16; 1 Cor. 15:1-3; Eph. 2:8-10; 2 Thess. 1:8-9)? This is so man cannot boast, and God alone gets the glory (Eph. 2:8-9).


The grand purpose of creation is to bring glory and pleasure to God in Christ (Eph. 1:1-10; Rev. 4:11). The gospel of Christ's death and resurrection for our sins, achieves this goal by magnifying God's grace and mercy towards undeserving sinners. The purpose of faithguard, is to glorify God, by defending and confirming the gospel of Jesus Christ.
